I am have a cluster db at the moment. I noticed that the attached drive was playing up - i.e. backups would not transfer unto (just a simple example).
I took the disk offline and online again. But when trying to start up the SQL Server in the Cluster Admin tool, I get the following error in the logs:
Starting up database 'master'.
Error: 5172, Severity: 16, State: 15.
Stack Overflow Dump not possible - Exception c00000fd E at 0x00409FCA
So basically from the looks of it, the master db is gone. What would be the suggested / advisable / best practise methods to restore / rebuild the master db in a clustered environment?
Just as some extra info: for whatever reason, I do not have the master db backup but I have the backup for the other dbs residing on this SQL server. There might be a possibility that the other dbs are also corrupted - but it's not an issue.
I guess I would like to hear what the quickest method is to rebuild the master and 'reattach' the db if possible. I am new to this so I am actually learning to swim when I am 'drowning' :P
Thank you in advance
